Scott’s on car at Wentworth
Cathkin Braes golfer Scott Jamieson hit the first hole in one of his European Tour career to win a £40,000 car.
The Scot aced the 10th hole at this year’s BMW PGA Championship in Wentworth, Surrey to earn himself a brand new BMW M2.
Scott was in the second-last group out on Friday, and he was right on the projected cut line at one over par when he arrived on the tee at the 184-yard par-three.
But he gave himself the biggest lift possible as he hit a perfect five-iron shot and his ball disappeared into the bottom of the cup.
The 32 year old told the Reformer: “I’ve missed the last few cuts so to make it last week was good especially for such a big event.
“To hit a hole in one anywhere is a special moment. You hit so many shots and some will land on the green and look like they’ll go in but they don’t. So when the ball disappeared and dropped in I was a bit surprised.
“To hit a hole in one and win a car like that was special, I don’t know if I’ll keep the car. I haven’t decided what I’m going to do. I think there is a waiting list for them. All in all it was a good few days. I played better than I had the past few weeks.”
Scott finished 47th on the leaderboard with a three over par score while fellow Scots Richie Ramsay and David Drysdale ended their final rounds just ahead on +2 and +1 respectively.
England’s Chris Wood, 28, came from three shots down to win the tournament and scoop €833,330 in prize money.
Scott jetted out to Sweden yesterday, Tuesday, for the Nordea Masters which start on June 4 before he travels to play in the Lyoness Open in Atzenbrugg Austria.
